I'm Ready! I'm Ready!

Oh yeah... the big show is next week!!  AAAAH!  Are you excited?  Holy cow, I am.  I got my tickets and my passes.

"Making Waves" is the theme of the show.

If you are coming too, it is $8 at the door each day FYI (kids 12 & under free).  This only happens every 2 years, so don't miss it!  There will be over 30 shops in the merchant mall selling fabric, thread, quilt supplies, pattern & kits, sewing machines & frames.  There will be lots of on-site demos.  There will be nearly 500 items in the show made by our guild members, plus hundreds of charity quilts in the entrance.  Guild members also have a marketplace for you to buy handmade our items.  There are draws, a cafeteria, and a Secret Santa drop bin for new/unwrapped toys, cash and/or non-perishable food bank donations.  The event is at Prairieland Park in Saskatoon.

Friday, October 21, 2011 from 10 am to 9 pm
Saturday, October 22, 2011 from 10 am to 6 pm. 

See you there!

Hi Monika
I just completed the last of my six entries. I pulled two for lack of time :(
I too am very excited. The show is always so amazing as is the Merchant Mall!
I wonder what treasures I'll be bringing home this time???

One sleeve on and one more to go upstairs to sew on then I'll be ready. Nothing like a little procrastination! The quilts have been done for eons but not the labels and sleeves. Fortunately my friend/neighbor will deliver them for me tomorrow. I'm looking forward to a few hours there on Satruday. See you then.
